The wait is over and winter is finally coming. The heavily anticipated seventh season of "Game of Thrones" has arrived and we are already scoping out castle lookalikes that are available to rent through HomeAway. We have expanded our list of "Game of Thrones"-inspired castles to match what we think will be seen in the brand new season.
Dragonstone is one of the most pivotal locations this season but if darkness and gloom isn’t your thing, we found a contemporary version of Dragonstone that we totally think would be modern-day Daenerys Targaryen’s vacation castle. This ocean-front luxury villa has the uniqueness and prominence fit for a Targaryen. This “castle” can accommodate 10 people for just $340 per person! (HomeAway does not own the rights to this photo)
Castle Black must hunker down again this season in preparation of The Long Winter! This replica of the dark, snowy castle on The Wall is located in Italy and decked out with luxurious bedrooms and botanical gardens fit for a king. This medieval castle can sleep up to eight people with four bedrooms and costs $318 per night. (HomeAway does not own the rights to this photo)
The Citadel is known for housing the most brilliant of scholars, and this Texas lighthouse is the perfect getaway to channel your inner Maester. This cozy, converted home can sleep fifteen of your closest friends for less than $50 per person!
We're all hoping The Dragon Pit will make its series debut this season. For a contemporary (and already wintry) take on what could be the Dragon Pit is this unique ski lodge in Snowshoe, West Virginia. This outdoorsy dome-house can accommodate up to 14 people (dragons?) with prices starting as low as $46 per person. (HomeAway does not own the rights to this photo)
Tower of Joy
No showdowns here! This rustic tower is situated right off the coast of Ireland and can sleep 7 people with 3 country-style bedrooms for under $50 per night!
